Background


Originally commissioned in association with the London SPINE Festival 2019.


This production contains themes that some people may find distressing.


Synopsis


It's the beginning of summer and the community festival is in full swing in the local park.


Everyone is there.


Crowds queue but among the smiles and excitement lies something that could spoil this party.


Developed in direct response to the growing number of teenagers in the UK struggling with their mental health, Crowded tells the story of ordinary young people whose anxiety, depression and desire leads to harmful and destructive behaviours.


Giving voice to emotions that are often unspoken due to social stigma, Crowded is a powerful, funny and uncompromising story, presented in a striking, immersive spoken word style with the audience part of the action.


It is written and performed by three exciting poet performers: Desree, Laura Rae and Slam the Poet, with additional text by Rosemary Harris.
